Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks are ideal for:
- Radiography (taking X-rays)
- Reproductive work
- Standing surgery
- IV fluid therapy
- Any other procedures requiring a stationary horse
Key Features of Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks:
- A three-pillar structure. If you’ve ever tried to extract a down horse from a four-pillar structure without a tractor, you’ll understand the benefit.
- A pressure-independent latching mechanism to open the stocks and release your patient, in case the unthinkable happens.
- Heavy padding covered with strong PVC in crucial areas to minimize patient injury, should an emergency arise. Padding is designed to be removable for cleaning, and is attached by heavy duty snaps and lacing.
- Extendable column will support a patient’s head (or whatever else within reason you need to hold up) for dentistry or other procedures.
- Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks are available as originally designed, as stationary stocks, or built to suit your specifications.
- Safety! See below!
Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks Offer Safety
While no structure can make working around horses a safe experience every time, Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks have been designed with that goal in mind.
For your patients: Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks provide a solid structure for patients to lean upon, preventing the movement and frights horses can experience under sedation.
This enhanced stability during procedures may minimize the amount of anaesthetic drug required by most equids for effective sedation, improving post-treatment stability and decreasing the likelihood of further injury.
For your clients: Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks free your clients from having to hold their horses’ heads while you perform procedures like dentistry.
They also provide a safety barrier, helping to prevent owners from being injured by their own horses under your care, providing a level of safety unachievable without stocks—at their place or yours. Your insurance company should care.
For you and your employed veterinarians: Equi-Still Portable Stocks offer you the above benefits. Dentistry, radiology, reproductive work, standing surgery are all simplified.
The stocks take only a few minutes to set up and you’ll save time and money by having your equipment where you need it, when you need it, at your client’s place or yours.
For those of you who love dentistry, the stocks support your patient’s head in a position which simplifies your work and even better, minimize the likelihood of a forefoot in your face while you’re attempting an infraorbital nerve block, among a load of other procedures.

About Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks and Blue Mist Equine Veterinary Centre
Elizabeth Thompson, BA, DVM, MANZCVS, GradDipTeach (Sec Sciences), is a practicing equine veterinarian who also writes non-fiction veterinary and fiction under the pseudonym of Lizzi Tremayne.
After completing her MANZCVS in Equine Dentistry, Lizzi’s frustration with the lack of facilities in her practice area needed for quality, state of the art dental work grew.
Because most of her practice area comprised a pleasure horse clientele without stocks, and no portable equine stocks seemed to be available in New Zealand, she decided to create Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks.
Consultation with many veterinarians in the USA and UK, combined with Lizzi’s own experience as a Large Animal ICU Student Technician while attending UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, resulted in the development and design of these stocks.
2017 will see our first foray into the United States with Equi-Still’s presence at the AAEP Annual Convention and Trade Show at San Antonio, Texas, 18-20 November. I hope to see you there!
Come on by for a cup of coffee and have a go with our stocks.
You won’t be disappointed.
Thanks for reading.
See you soon!
